Hal Borland Quotes

"In a painful time of my life I went often to a wooded hillside where May apples grew by the hundreds, and I thought the sourness of their fruit had a symbolism for me. Instead, I was to find both love and happiness soon thereafter. So to me [the May apple] is the mandrake, the love symbol, of the old dealers in plant restoratives."

Quotes About Joven

"—Yo estoy montado en este animal. Tú estás bastante cerca, y mirando. Sin embargo, crees que el animal está solo. Te equivocas… Atardecido no avanza solo. Yo, un feroz guerrero, estoy escondido en su costado. Y tú que estás allí, y eres un sideresio, no puedes darte cuenta. Atardecido se te acerca. Tú no comprendes el peligro que trae consigo, tú continúas despreocupado. Entonces, cuando estamos suficientemente próximos, aparezco. Sin darte tiempo a nada, cubro a la carrera la corta distancia que nos separa. Caigo sobre ti y tus extrañas armas, y te mato tres veces —Cucub se arrojó contra Dulkancellin, simulado un hacha con su mano—. Mato a este sideresio por el lulu anciano, lo mato por el joven que corría de prisa, lo mato por el águila amiga…" - Author: Liliana Bodoc

Quotes About Mean Friendship

"Family. It was just a word…Could see its letters all strung together. But it was a symbol, too. And people thought they knew what it meant…It was a thing everyone had an opinion about—that it was all you had when you didnt have anything else, that family was there, that blood was thicker than water, whatever. But when Nailer thought about it, most of these words and ideas just seemed like good excuses for people to behave badly and get away with it. Family wasnt more reliable than marriages or friendships…maybe less…The blood bond was nothing. It was the people that mattered. If they covered your back, and you covered theirs, then maybe that was worth calling family." - Author: Paolo Bacigalupi

Quotes About Mala Beads

"I remembered the malangs of Shah Jamal, the dirty, shirtless renouncers with ratty beards and dreads and bare chests covered in necklaces of prayer beads, throwing around their arms in Charlie Manson dances and whipping out their old ID cards to say look, I used to be someone and now Im no one, Im so lost in Allah that Ive thrown away the whole world. Would that qualify them as Sufis? I didint know how to measure it. Whether the malangs were Sufi saints or just drugged-out bums didnt really matter. The lesson I took from them was that youre never disqualified from loving Allah, never. And I could see again that what I went through was nothing new, not even anything special in the history of Islam, not a clashing of East and West; it was always there. And that made me feel more Muslim than ever, because fuck it all, CNN, this is Islam too." - Author: Michael Muhammad Knight

Quotes About Conflicting Ideas

"Among so many conflicting ideas and so many different perspectives, the honest man is confused and distressed and the skeptic becomes wicked ... Since one must take sides, one might as well choose the side that is victorious, the side which devastates, loots, and burns. Considering the alternative, it is better to eat than to be eaten." - Author: Napoleon
